Culture FIX: Nov. 8-14

Yours Truly is truly glad to be back on the beat, guiding you in search of your next FIX. This week is a cornucopia of events from art openings to movies to a big brass band. Indulge yourself before the busy holiday season really gears up and find something inspiring or fun or relaxing to do.

Culture FIX: Nov. 1-7

Halloween is over and all the scary stuff is behind us, right? Oh no, not at all, culture fans! The coming week is haunted by the specters of a flaming Ferrari, a headless body, a demon barber, a witch, a giant, a mermaid, a Big Fish, a substitute-teacher nun and – most frighteningly of all – four ersatz singing Swedes.

Culture FIX: Oct. 25-31

I’m deathly pleased to return briefly as your Culture FIXer. You may shiver from all the things the Queen City offers to those who dare to go out in the next week. Not everything is rooted in ghouls and goblins, though, so clutch your cloak and venture forth!

Culture FIX: Oct. 18-24

Fall is definitely here. Yep, leaves are falling and so is the temperature, but the Queen City never falls short of artsy things to do. Get a serious percussion fix or check out some interesting art openings. May Festival makes a special ,off-season appearance or you can hear a little mid-week Beethoven. Aaaand, there’s COFFEE.

Culture FIX: Oct 11-17

Autumn is upon us. The stunning colors and the crisp air invite us to get out and enjoy the season leading up to a gorgeous Hunter’s moon at the end of the month. Outdoor fun is winding down, but there are a lot of warm and cozy things to do inside this week. The CSO has fired back up and there are some interesting movies on tap. And, there’s sauerkraut. Enjoy plentiful theater and jazz as the Queen City falls headlong into, well, Fall.

Culture FIX: Oct. 4-10

This week’s FIX choices are pretty music-heavy. Still, there’s plenty of variety here, and some of these music events appeal to various other senses, even the sense of smell. You read that right.

Culture FIX: Sept. 20-26

Artistry is all around us. Art is an exhilarating dance in a food market. Art is relished in old, beautifully restored buildings. Art is participatory on historic bridges. Well-appointed concert halls are nice. Expertly curated museums are comfortable, but try on something new this week.

Culture FIX: Sept. 13-19

Here at Movers & Makers, we like to focus on the area’s top cultural and philanthropic happenings, and that often means pretty sophisticated events geared for grown-up audiences. But how about the kids? And how about that party with 700,000 of your closest friends?

Culture FIX: Sept. 6-12

It’s easy to assume that, with the last blast of Labor Day Weekend behind us, fall has arrived. Well, not quite. The weather is saying otherwise, and the autumnal equinox doesn’t arrive until Saturday, Sept. 23. Let’s not rush things.
